Idaho: Flier Mayor and Council members face recall petitions

Flier Mayor Rick Dunn and the entire city council, Ruby Hite, Joe Lineberry, Don Barkley and Russell “Bud” Sheridan, are facing recalls after the council announced that a police officer who shot a dog running loose would remain on the payroll.

Petitioners cannot begin the process until the council is in office 90 days. They've only been there 82. Petitioners need 201 signatutes (20%) in 75 days). There's going to be some real questions on replacements -- the city uses an appointment process, so in case of recalls, the mayor appoints new city council members, and the city council elected new mayors.

Here's an editorial opposing the recall effort.
